    Not sure how complex this would be for you, but the "video embed" does not work if you want to add a start time code (ie 1m34s) adding the youtube time code breaks the link.

    Not a massive issue but it can be useful to point people to the relevant part of long videos.

    And change this bar to something like the lower one:

    Edit: you got the hex values of those colours? takes time of work to 3-5

    Can I just say, officially, that I hate the "Mark Forums Read" button? I browse the forums exclusively using "New Posts", and I liked the way that vBulletin used to handle this: you visited the forum, and it automatically updated your last visit time/date . Now when I come here, I have to remember to manually click on the Mark Forums Read button - it seems like a backward step to me.

    I know it'll involve some work, but is there any way we could go back to the old (better) way of marking the forums as read?

    Hmmmm, so you want something that just tells you that you have viewed the post previously or gives you the time you viewed it? I too use the "new posts" to browse the froums, but I haven't changed my viewing habits at all, so struggling to understand the difference.

    I click on 'New Posts' and a list of posts appear that I haven't looked at yet.

    [​IMG]

    I click on one of the threads (in this case "Forum Update 30/06/17" and then click on new posts again.

    [​IMG]

    all the ones I haven't seen are still there, but now the forum update post has gone, as I have seen it.

    [​IMG]

    I then would view the ones that I wanted to read and leave the ones that I didn't. If I came back later, I would just hit new posts and do the same, read the ones that interested me, leave the ones that didn't.

    I still do that and don't click on "Mark all read" but If I click "Mark all Read" and then click on new posts, it says there are no new posts.

    Personally, I hated the way the old forums would register "new posts" as it tended to be "new posts since your last visit" regardless of whether or not you'd actually read them - so if I logged on briefly, the next time I visited the next "new" post would be the first post made since my last visit, even if there were posts before that which I hadn't read. It used to drive me up the bloody wall, as it was totally different from the way pretty much every other forum I use does things :D

    Not yet. Unfortunately our meeting had to be moved due to something unrelated. I'll 100% mention it.
